A bunch of us at the lab were talking about the possibility of getting speakers to come to the lab, or just awesome hackers that we'd like to hang out with. These don't even have to be higher profile people or anything, just people we respect and would like to emulate a little. We also talked about kind of just having impromptu hacking sessions with them.
What would be some good people to bring out? I suggested some of the 3D printing community like Triffid_hunter, Whosawhatsis, Nophead (and dan then dubbed me 3d printer ambassador with a 1x2), but what other interesting people could we bring to the lab?
Or maybe the opposite. Maybe we could send Dan/Mack/Ian to some of the bigger hackerspaces for a visit, in order to gather some of their culture and bring it back with us. We could send them to Null Space Labs, Heatsync, NY Resistor, etc.
